KYB Americas Corp. has announced that Chris Gillund was promoted to the position of marketing manager. The announcement was made today by Mike Fiorito, KYB vice president, from KYB’s aftermarket headquarters in Greenwood, Indiana.
Gillund will be responsible for KYB’s marketing activities, including national promotions, social media, and both digital and print advertising. After working in professional sports photography and design, Chris joined KYB in 2015 as marketing coordinator. In that role, Gillund was key in developing the new Certified KYB Vehicle Stability and Control Kit, as well as spearheading KYB’s 360-degree digital image library.
“We are proud of what Chris has accomplished during his tenure as marketing coordinator and believe he is ready for his new role,” said Fiorito. “We have national promotions going on almost all year, hence our marketing department is busy continually producing great materials. We look forward improving on our foundation with Chris in a lead role.”
Gillund earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Communications Design from Purdue University.
